    Not his best recording of this song. If you peck around you can find a recording with the back story. Pure Awesomeness!!!!

    Last.fm is back on track. I've definitely been listening to "Dyin Crapshooter" - and it's a remarkable song. A bit rough (but then it seems to be one of those Library of Congress tracks). But very distinctive.

    Either way it's some awesome story. Damn the blues just OWN.
